Impressive Trailer for Cannes Sensation THE ARTIST

     August 25, 2011


Michel Hazanavicius’s The Artist is a loving tribute to the twilight years of the silent movie era.  The story revolves around a silent film star who falls in love with a young extra who eventually becomes a movie star.  And The Artist is a silent movie.  In 2011.  That’s just awesome and judging by the glowing response out of the Cannes Film Festival, the movie works.  The Weinstein Company picked up the film and has put some serious faith in their marketing team to sell a movie where no one talks.  In 2011.  That’s going to be jarring for modern audiences (and the leads aren’t American movie stars!  Bonus!) but I can’t wait to check out this movie at TIFF.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The Artist hits theaters on November 23rd.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Artist:

Hollywood 1927. George Valentin is a very successful silent movie star. The arrival of talking pictures will mark the end of his career. Peppy Miller, a young woman extra, becomes a major movie star.

    That’s it.

    This has just jumped to become my second most anticipated movie of the year besides Drive.

    That’s one of the most beautiful movie trailers I’ve seen since Where the Wild Things are and 2046 – my favourite film.

    The saddest part is: it will take forever to be released in Brazil, enjoy it fellas.

    I really thought i was watching a movie from the 20′s or something until i saw John Goodman.

    It’s amazing to see so much story play out without any dialogue. And in the trailer alone, that is impressive. Not since Ed Wood has a film came out that is a simple, classic Hollywood type movie.

    And the lead actress, Bérénice Bejo, wasn’t she the girl from A Knight’s Tale? The girl who gave the Nike armor to Heath? LOL She’s awesome and looks awesome in this movie.

    I love the fact that as 3-D appears to be fizzling as the big “future of cinema”, we have this beautiful silent movie coming out.

    Jean Dujardins is a great comedic actor. I suggest you to watch “Brice de Nice”, or “OSS 117 Caire nest of Spies”, a spoof for James Bond movies.

  • David Bishop

    Both leads in OSS 117 in this film – MUST see this.
